You and I are living in a time of revolution and reform. Webster's dictionary defines reform as
REFORM: A change for the better as a result of correcting abuses
And defines revolution as
REVOLUTION: a drastic and far reaching change in ways of thinking and behaving.
We are living in a world where we dramatically need change. Everywhere, in our government, in our economy, in our health care, in our schools, in our homes and families...EVERYWHERE we desperately need change. And this change that we so desperatly need begins in the house of God. The state of the world reflects the state of the church. We need revolution and reform in our churches. We have gotten so far from where the church began in the book of acts, it's only our T-shirts and bumper stickers that announce our Christianity. We are the salt of the world. We are the preservative.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?
We need reform and we need change. Jesus is coming and his bride is a mess. But I believe God will do a quick work as the true gospel is restored and preached in all the earth. We are living in a time when dictators are falling, terrorists are dying, and the next move of God is stirring. There is a changing of the guard happening right now. The Eli's and Saul's are being removed and the Samuels and David's are rising up. God is Preparing the body of Christ for The final move of his spirit before Jesus comes to take his bride home. This revolution... This reform is a return back to our first love. A return to Jesus. A return to grace.
